    Just wondering if this is a production item I can find somewhere before I start looking into something custom-made.

    I'm looking for a Strat pickguard that will fit a bridge humbucker and a single volume control. No other holes aside from those for the mounting screws (I don't really care how many of those there are). And it needs to fit around a Floyd Rose.

    Is this already a thing?

    Warmoth will make it to order, those are all standard choices when configuring an order from them.

    Fat humbucker/trembucker is, confusingly, the snugger of the two, named after the fat strat style using open coils and so rounded to fit snugly.

    The regular humbucker/trembucker will accommodate open coils and covered models.

    A point to consider is that some manufacturers, Seymour Duncan being the prime example, stick to the Trembucker dimensions where the whole bobbin is longer to accommodate the wider pole spacing. Others such as Dimarzio and their F-Spacing simply widen the pole spacings on a standard length bobbin.

    Ergo an uncovered SD trembucker needs a fat trembucker routing, whereas an uncovered F-spaced Dimarzio only needs fat humbucker routing.

    If your 'Space' is over the UK ... https://www.axesrus.co.uk/ARUSPGCRAGGYMOD-p/arumodpgstratcraggy.htm (with colour and knob position options too) :)
    Alternatively just Google or whatever "stratocaster single humbucker single volume pickguard" for a load of options including .... eBay knock-offs (which may or may not actually fit) and Amazon links to the original Fender part (but they seems to be out of stock in near and outer Space!).

    The one that I posted from Amazon is pretty nice. I had to file the neck opening a bit, but that is pretty normal. You could do the same for the Floyd if it needs more room.

    Warmoth has a pickguard builder, you input the specs and they build it for you. They have done quite a few of what you're looking for.

    Thanks everyone. I went with a Warmoth since they had both the option for a single pot-mounting hole somewhere other than the standard volume location, and the color I wanted.
